Yeah. We had youth camp.

I better go.
Bye. 🙂

Quilt patterns

Posted by joelbyer on June 22, 2008

No, that wasn’t my announcement in church tonight, but I just wanted to point out this amazing new feature at WordPress blogs. Evidently, WordPress administrators (may they live forever), have deemed it necessary to provide a quilt-like avatar for all non-Wordpress blog commenters.
Just incredibly cool.

Come to church tonight to hear special announcement

Posted by joelbyer on June 22, 2008

Yes, you’d like to hear it right now WITHOUT coming to church, wouldn’t you?

Tough.

Deal with it.

Water guns

Posted by joelbyer on June 22, 2008

Yesterday, I looked for some while doing a little yard saling and so on, but didn’t find anything worth picking up. Reason? Youth camp is next week, of course. 🙂

Even deeper thoughts…by Mitch Hedberq

Posted by joelbyer on June 19, 2008

The intellectual insights keep getting deeper around here, folks.

A severed foot is the ultimate stocking stuffer.

I bought a seven-dollar pen because I always lose pens and I got sick of not caring.

I haven’t slept for ten days, because that would be too long.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I’m with four or more people.

I once saw a forklift lift a crate of forks. And it was way to literal for me.

I think foosball is a combination of soccer and shish kabobs.

I wanted to buy a candle holder, but the store didn’t have one. So I got a cake.

I’m against picketing, but I don’t know how to show it.

If my kid couldn’t draw I’d make sure that my kitchen magnets didn’t work.

Meet Steven Wright.

Posted by joelbyer on June 17, 2008

A while back I gave out some profound quotes by Jack Handey. Here is another genius I’ve discovered, Steven Wright. Ponder deeply on his wisdom.

A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I’m afraid of widths.

Cross country skiing is great if you live in a small country.

Everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time.

For my birthday I got a humidifier and a de-humidifier… I put them in the same room and let them fight it out.

George is a radio announcer, and when he walks under a bridge… you can’t hear him talk.

How young can you die of old age?

I bought some batteries, but they weren’t included.

I got this powdered water – now I don’t know what to add.

I had a friend who was a clown. When he died, all his friends went to the funeral in one car.

I had some eyeglasses. I was walking down the street when suddenly the prescription ran out.

I have the world’s largest collection of seashells. I keep it on all the beaches of the world… perhaps you’ve seen it.

I hooked up my accelerator pedal in my car to my brake lights. I hit the gas, people behind me stop, and I’m gone.

I installed a skylight in my apartment… the people who live above me are furious.

I invented the cordless extension cord.

I play the harmonica. The only way I can play is if I get my car going really fast, and stick it out the window.

I poured spot remover on my dog. Now he’s gone.

I saw a subliminal advertising executive, but only for a second.

I think it’s wrong that only one company makes the game Monopoly.

I used to work in a fire hydrant factory. You couldn’t park anywhere near the place.

I was trying to daydream, but my mind kept wandering.

I went to a general store but they wouldn’t let me buy anything specific.

I love this guy.

Pretty girls

Posted by joelbyer on June 15, 2008

Wisdom from Jeffrey to Janessa & Jen before church this morning:
“Janessa, you very pretty today. Mommy you look pretty too. Both of you girls look pretty.”

Jeffrey obviously has fine taste when it comes to beauty.

I agree! On this Father’s Day, I’m privileged to live in a home of pretty girls and one handsome redhead. 🙂
